Real anger behind it? I’m not so sure. Both artists are definitely making real money even in this state of the industry.

Didn’t they play in Japan earlier this year?

The real reason nobody cares about DIIV is Cole's insufferable self-regard. Even if certain things have changed since they were really hyped, his personality poisoned the well. Also their most well-known music was always boring and whether they've progressed or not, that once-trendy sound is dead as a doornail in 2019

Man, what a song. Impressive and bold cover

The Unnatural World is fine but I think most would agree that Deathconsciousness is the important one, both qualitatively and in terms of the band's longstanding cult appeal

At the very least, calling someone from this background an “insurgent” feels comically disingenuous

The Tom Waits stuff is mildly amusing but the alternate mix and sequencing of the Don't Tell A Soul material is just amazing. Real shame the songs weren't released like this originally.

I’m something of an MCR apologist, but I don’t think Bowie could have conceivably written lyrics like this... not to say that all of his are gems, but none are overbearing and bathetic in precisely this way.

I was at this one. Built to Spill's three-piece live lineup is really disappointing. Great show otherwise.

Didn't expect this from them but it's nice to see. Also a good deep cut song choice.

I'm of the opinion that the "Whiteout Conditions" title track is one of their very best songs. This one, it's decent
